The making of each work transforms the way I see myself and the world around me. Once I start engaging in the process of working I'm embarking as well upon a journey whose point of arrival is unkown to me. For me, intentions and preconceived ideas have a very limited role in the creative process. More fascinating are the impasses, the unexpected procedures, the accidents, the unwanted discoveries, as well as time wasted and useless moves. I'm thus working in different mediums, always looking for the one that is matching to mediate what I want to tell during the process of working. Out of a personal passion either I'm visiting people that fascinate me and talk with them or I'm inviting people to participate in the process of my projects.

Artist by nature all my life born to be creative in every way...painter, dancer, performance, music/sound, sculpture, video, poetry...screenplays, indie films you name it I've tried it.

In my creative process I express the deepest darkest ideas of the mind, soul and body by using situations, figures and artificial shapes to emulate nature in a futuristic way. I also use layering, transparency and texture to express these ideas...whether societal, emotional or political.

"Pascale Barret is a contemporary media artist working with emotions, interaction, intimacy...
Her artistic research builds many links with the scientific research, numerical worlds (data, virtual geometries, avatars, physical and natural models …) and with the physical world and the individual.
Her questions by this search approach topics such as the identity in the metaverse, the place of the body in technology, the representation of oneself in a virtual world, the interactions with mixed environments, presence and immersion, interface between body and technology."
